How Much Snow Do You Have On Near By Lakes

Recommended Posts

With the recent storm on Saturday, how much snow do you have on your lakes and how much ice did you have before the snow. In S.E.N.D. the lakes had 4 to 5 inches of snow. Now most lakes have over a foot of snow. Which means lots of slush.

 

What do you have

I checked some lakes on Friday and the slush was pretty Minimal. If there was slush it was less than 1” or was refroze. But most was dry under the snow. Now after the big dumping of snow (11”) we now have 17” on the ground in central MN. Things could get sloppy or dangerous. Heard of a few smaller lakes that opened back up but a lot of bigger lakes up north I like to get to locked up last night with the -1 low.

Well I have close to a foot of snow in my yard but zero ice as of last weekend.  The lakes finally froze over Sunday night but the next 3 days are going to be in the mid 30's.  Next week looks great right now.  Lets just hope the ice can hang on until then.

Yes that will be great and since we wont have any snow on the ice is should make some serious ice and quickly.  I just hope the lakes that froze over the other night can make it through this warm spell.  As long as the wind doesn't pick up to much I think they will make it.

Would be nice if the wind blew and blew some of the snow off the lakes, so they can freeze faster.

The only problem with that is it was wet and heavy when it fell, it isn't going anywhere until it melts off.

Were you just checking it Dave, or did you spend the night? 

We went up and spent the night at a friend's cabin about 5 miles away. We planned to stay in the camper but when we were offered a nice warm cabin we said yes!

It would have been interesting to hear how the heater kept up?

 

Say, did you get a different camper?  They don't put those dbl sliders on smaller travel trailers much? 🙂

Yeah, we found an older park model for sale at a good price just down the road so we bought it at about the end of the season. We sold our smaller one to some friends of ours. We really like the extra room and the slide out. 

 

We just need to move the deck over by the sliding door in the spring.

We stayed in the smaller one last winter just fine. I have no doubt this on would be the same but I probably wouldn't want to stay in this sub-zero weather we have going now.

Yeah, when you're doing seasonal it's nice to have a little more room to spread out and relax or have the extra room for folks to stay with you. 👍

 

Yep, this one has a whole spare bedroom for guests and even a flush toilet!😁

    • My dad has a catalog you can get Carolina reaper seeds. 7.50 for 10 seeds. 55% germination. I know the way I grow leggy peppers from seed it would cost me 50 bucks to get a couple good plants. Hopefully I can find some plants this spring.
    • Haven't fished Centerville this year.  We usually target the Northerns in 8-10 feet with shiners and tip-ups
    • I remember the very high index around the 96/97 winter.  Actually that was the first I ever heard of it.  Made sense though. We were riding the NSST north of Silver Bay and one of our wrong turns brought us to two mountains of roadkill deer carcasses. The roads were the only means of travel for them. That was the deepest snow I ever encountered sledding. At one overlook I stepped off the side of the packed trail and went over waist deep, needed to grab the sled to climb back out.. The 3 sided log shelter at this spot only had a gopher hole in the snow to get down in it!   Hope Feb isn't a repeat of last year..
    • i've been watching this for 4-5 years now, maybe longer. back when the DNR cut back even some northern minnesota zones not have anterless drawings.
    • I don’t usually search out the WSI but have taken notice of it for years.  They usually start reporting it in Outdoor News when it starts getting bad.  I figured it was going to be high this year.  We’re just lucky it hasn’t been colder.   Still, I hope for the best for both mooses running around here. 😉
    • Just an interjection, if you have been following the issue of Moose vrs Deer in the NE Minnesota area.   You may now return to whatever you were going to say about deer and snow.    As I understand it, cold and snow can be hard on the deer population.    Although, judging from the evidence in the spring at our cabin it hasn't hurt much the past few years.   Anecdotal evidence and all that.
    • I didn’t realize we changed the subject
    • Naw this moose hunts deer in the arrowhead and the deer numbers have been for the last 5 years now. This winter could really hurt the herd
    • Since I Deer hunt and snowmobile I'm always a little torn when there's a lot of snow during a winter. 😐
